NFL Mocks breaks down Trevathan’s game into pros and cons:


Great sideline to sideline speed

Very adapt at attacking line of scrimmage and getting tackles for loss

Sound blitzer

Improving Coverage linebacker

Great wrap up tackler

Thunderous hits for his size

3 year starter

 Makes a ton of splash plays


Can get engulfed by lineman

Does not shed blockers well

Still needs refinement in coverage

Sometimes over pursues

Player Comparison:           Lance Briggs

Round Projection:               Late 3rd or early 4th round


Danny Trevathan is an overlooked prospect.  Playing on a mediocre team without much help he has had a great career.  He might fall due to the fact he can only play in a 4-3 defense at WLB.  That being said much like Briggs he impacts the game as a tackler, blitzer, and in coverage.  Teams should not sleep on this kid.  Teams like the Colts, Bengals, Browns, Giants, Eagles, Lions, and Saints could use him.


There’s been speculation about potentially moving Danny to safety at the NFL level because of his lack of size, but that he’ll have to drop some weight if he does make that position switch. Danny has played for some very underachieving Kentucky teams in his career, but that never stopped him from going out onto the field and giving it 110% every single down. He’ll be a steal for the Broncos.
